Betfair Sportsbook covers every Major, PGA Tour and European Tour golf tournament across the season. Additional each-way places are now a weekly feature and their depth of additional markets such as Match Bets and Group Betting puts most of the competition in the shade.
Sharing the odds compiler team with sister site Paddy Power brings huge benefits to Betfair fixed odds customers. Betfair Sportsbook in the main mimics Paddy Power when it comes to additional each-way places provided. 10 places each-way at 1/5 odds are the consistent Betfair Sportsbook terms for the Major Championships, and across the regular Tour events they offer 8 places each-way on the PGA Tour and a mix of 7 or 8 places each-way at 1/5 odds on the DP World Tour. For the sheer number of each-way places Betfair Sportsbook are hard to beat.
Another huge advantage of using Betfair Sportsbook for golf bets is their Cash Out facility where you can close a bet during the tournament. This facility actually gives punters the opportunity to effectively trade during the action, but instead of using the Betfair Exchange, prices to close your bet are offered by the bookmaker. Alternatively of course being a Betfair member allows you to easily lay off bets on the Exchange from the same wallet or from bets you placed with another online bookmaker. For more on how the Exchange works read our golf trading article.
Punters used to fixed odds punting can often find laying a bet on Betfair exchange intimidating, so Cash Out makes it easy to close bets simply with 2 clicks. You can use Cash Out to access a popular way of making profit on golf, namely backing long-shots or fast starters pre-event and then locking in profit as their odds shorten during the tournament. In that way it’s more than possible to make a profit when a selection doesn’t even win or place, they just have to be in contention as the tournament develops.
Typical sportsbook markets: Overall Winner, Top 5, Top 10, Top 20, 1st Round Leader, Daily 2/3 Balls, Group Betting, Big Guns vs the Field, Tournament Match Bets, Top American/European/Rest of the World/ Asian.

Betfair Golf Betting Odds
As you would expect, we keep as close as we can to player odds here at Golf Betting System. Betfair Sportsbook are competitive when it comes to strong outright market prices and it’s worth remembering that this is against a number of their online bookmaker competitors who are only offering 5 places each-way at 1/4 odds or 6 places each-way at 1/5 odds.
It’s inevitable that their headline prices sometimes suffer when they provide so many extended each-way places, however Betfair Sportsbook offer the same odds as Paddy Power. So all-in-all we are amazed at just how good Betfair Sportsbook golf odds are when they are offering so many additional each-way spots. Undoubtedly despite the each-way value, Betfair Sportsbook are still always top-end on odds as well.
The real beauty with Betfair Sportsbook is that their balance of player odds and additional each-way places is market-leading right now.
